Blagaj, Bosnia Blog Post, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Destinations, Europe 0 Blagaj, Bosnia is the site of a 600 year old monetary of the Dervish order, a branch of Sufis. Overall it’s a beautifully preserved site visited by families to spend the day on a serene and tranquil setting or for visiting the monastery. A short and pretty walk along the serene Buna river to get to the monastery. What looks like a typical house with the classic stone slabs roof, really isn’t. Rather it’s an old mill over the Buna river. The monastery, situated at the edge of the cliff and next to the source of the Buna river is peaceful and well suited for prayer. What looks like an important religious book.

It starts at the mouth of a deep underground gorge, an unassuming presence hidden inside a secret cave. The newborn Buna river looking out at the world for the first time – not a bad view of the life ahead filled with ups and downs, until it’s final resting place.
